The only disadvantage to using a baitcasting reel is that they’re a bit more difficult to master than a spinning reel and a bad cast can end up landing you with a bird’s nest of tangled line that may leave you a bit flustered. These reels require a bit of practice, but if you make the investment of your time you’re sure to find out why so many people swear by them.

The Ambassadeur Morrum ZX-3600 is a best-in-class round bait casting reel by Abu Garcia and one of their few reels that is still made in Sweden. The price point is high on this reel, but you can feel the quality when you pick it up. Made with bass fisherman in mind, the Morrum takes 135 yards of 12lb mono or 30lb braid on its aluminum spool and sends it far out on incredibly smooth, silent casts under the precise control of Abu’s Infinitely Variable Centrifugal Brake system.
What is the best baitcasting reel? After conducting over 20 hours of research from fellow anglers and getting the chance to fish with some of these reels. I've come up with 5 reels that cover the whole spectrum of needs. I looked at the following categories, to compile this list. Value adding features, braking systems, drag systems, casting distance, smoothness during casting and retrieve, and most importantly price. With reels, you usually get what you pay for. For price, the sweet spot seems to be the midrange reels. This range gives you better bearings and materials than the entry level reels, some features from the premium reels but without the premium price. Editor's choice goes to the Curado K. The best bang for buck goes to Lew's tournament MB. The Daiwa Tatula SV TW gets the award for most reliable.

July 2016 I have used this real very hard throw up to 4 ounce baits, has not missed a beat. I caught all these muskies in the pictures on this reel, handled them absolutely perfect. You need to take the spool out and put some grease down in the dog gear if you hear a grinding sound that will fix the problem. There is nothing wrong with the real it's just they are skimpy on their grease cost money you know. I am guess I have 40 hours of had use and it still doing great, there is no paint showing signs of wear either. I will give a update.
